eSciDoc Days 2010 in Copenhagen

19.10.2010
FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure and Max Planck Society (MPG) invite to the third eSciDoc Days / presentation of eSciDoc infrastructure and applications / users tell about their experiences

On November 16 and 17, 2010, the third eSciDoc Days will be held at the Royal Library in Copenhagen, Denmark. The event is held by FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure, and the Max Planck Society – Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL).

In a strategic partnership. the two organizations are developing an open source eResearch infrastructure for web-based scientific work in a multidisciplinary environment. eSciDoc supports the entire scientific value generation process, from the first idea to experiments, data analysis and evaluation, and the publication of the results.

The growing number of users who work with the eSciDoc software and develop applications that are based on it shows that eSciDoc is well accepted by the community. At this year‘s eSciDoc Days, existing applications from various scientific disciplines will be presented. Workshops and lectures with practical relevance will give a comprehensive overview of eSciDoc and how to employ it. Tutorials will give the participants the opportunity to familiarize themselves with installing the eSciDoc infrastructure and developing eSciDoc applications. There is also room to discuss future developments with the experts from FIZ Karlsruhe and the MPDL.

The keynote speakers at this year‘s eSciDoc Days will give an overview of current developments in scientific communication: Birte Christensen-Dalsgaard from the University of Copenhagen will hold a lecture on “The change of scholarly communication - and some consequences“ and Dr. Laurent Romary, INRIA & HUB-IDSL, will talk about “Outlining a scholarly workbench - publication and data as a continuum”.

The program of the eSciDoc Days 2010 is available at https://www.escidoc.org/; registration deadline: October 22, 2010.

About eSciDoc
eSciDoc was funded within the scope of the German e-Science Initiative of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) as a joint project of FIZ Karlsruhe and the Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL)) until 2009. Afterwards, the partners opened the project for the interested scientific public and signed a Memorandum of Understandig about their further co-operation and the further development of the software. The entire eSciDoc software is available as open source under the Common Development and Distribution License (CCDL).
About FIZ Karlsruhe
FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure is a not-for-profit organization with the public mission to make sci-tech information from all over the world publicly available and to provide related services in order to support the national and international transfer of knowledge and the promotion of innovations.
Our business areas:
• STN International – the world’s leading online service for research and patent information in science and technology
• KnowEsis – innovative e-Science solutions to support the process of research in all its stages, and throughout all scientific disciplines

• Databases and Information Services – Databases and science portals in mathematics, computer science, crystallography, chemistry, and energy technology

FIZ Karlsruhe is a member of the Leibniz Association (WGL) which consists of 86 German research and infrastructure institutions.

About the Max Planck Digital Library
The Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL) is a service institution within the Max Planck Society. Its aim is to develop a modern electronic infrastructure for supplying scientists with information; secure, long-term data storage; publication of research results following the principles of open access; and ditital, web-based research and collaboration.
The MPDL has the following tasks:
• To ensure the basic supply of the Max Planck institutes with electronic publications and publication databases.
• To assist the Max Planck institutes in creating digital and web-based research environments.
• To provide a repository for publications by the Max Planck institutes and to assist them, if necessary, in the digital editing of scientific raw data.

• To support the president of the Max Planck Society within the scope of the Max Planck Society’s open access policy and other tasks of scientific political relevance.

Im Focus: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...

Im Focus: Basel researchers succeed in cultivating cartilage from stem cells

Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.

Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
